Default Forum seem empty lately?

Has anyone else noticed a drop off in activity? I normally check in at least once a day and there have been fewer updates to read these past weeks.

I wonder if it's not vacations and other summer fun that is competing with us

That's my guess Underwater...people get busy in summer with vacations and kids out of school. I bet it picks back up in Fall.


P.S. Still trying to catch up to you!

I think that's it. It seems like it has been like this in the summer before.

Yup, admittedly, I was one of those who usually disappeared when summer rolled around but this summer, I am making a conscious effort to stay here and keep posting to stay accountable. I've always ended up with 5-10lb gain when fall starts and etc.

Definitely summer parties, activities and vacations going on.

I think people are busier during the summer...I know I am. But I made a promise to myself to post at least once a day to keep myself on track. We are having a gay old time on the 250's-250's thread though!

I'm still working on posting daily--I slacked a bit during our vacation but 3fc is an integral part of my process!

Guilty! I'm trying to stay focused...but this Summer is the first time I've had off in sooooo long...there has been beer...and ice cream... and pizza. But there has also been 20+ mile bike rides, daily swims, and hiking! I'm going to do better at dropping it and staying accountable too!

This for me too. Work and life are both busier, but I still post in my decades thread every day to keep myself accountable.

I'm reading every day but don't post often. I feel a little out of the loop since I can't concentrate on losing weight right now, but I should be back with a vengeance sometime next year.

Next week, I'll be leaving on a 3 week vacation with VERY little internet access (unless I want to pay $70+ for 120 mins - ouch). Will probably only have limited access at the hotel before and after the cruise and at Wi-Fi accesses.

I'm assuming the same is going for other vacationers out there

YES, I completely agree, I am pretty shocked about how slow it has been!
